So my first post about this was all about destroying or gutting the basement. This house was built in 1959 and I swear to God that the basement had not been updated since then.
Well now that the basement is gutted, we have begun to form an image of what it may look like. I don’t know what happens to men when they start talking finished basements. All of a sudden we’re getting speakers built into walls and a wet bar, when all I wanted were cream walls and a light floor. I mean if this was the house we were going to live in for the rest of our lives (that’s another blog post in itself) then, i really would let him do what he wanted. But this is what he’s shown me so far:
Now I had to remind him that we’re building a basement, not an office space. And I’m not putting black on the walls or rocks on the floor, and by no means are we going to have fake palm tree’s. I don’t mind the last one, and we’ll just replace the Crown with wine But I digress…
This is what I want:
So you see our dilemma. It’s a little hard to compromise when you see the difference in vision here. Now i’ve got him to budge on the black walls and rocks, we just have to see how much more I can get him to budge… Any suggestions??
